Well, been a while again.

I did what I was told. File was reported to not output what we're after, so I have a better plan. List for me the steps using linux that will result in a properly formatted CF/SD? Then we can try again. My steps seemed wanting now.

*facepalm*

Ok, I said to add "-F 16" to your mkfs line, so...

mkfs.vfat -F 16 /dev/whateveryourdeviceis

You want the actual device, not the first partition (eg mmcda not mmcda1); that saves you from having to worry about partition types and fdisk and stuff.

Well, now that did work. I swapped to CF (aka microdrive), and did as you requested. I'm wondering now if my SD was part of the problem?

mkfs.msdos -F 16 -I /dev/sdd

The restore went perfect. Now I must ask. what did that just do? Do I have emergency rom back again?

BTW, I must add. I think the recommendation to use the Fn+D+M was a great one. Working from read only is great methodology IMO.

Now I'll start working on restoring the hdd if I need to, to get back to installing OpenBSD/zaurus. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I learned a lot from this, and I realize now how intricate my Z really is.

That's good news.

I don't know why your SD card doesn't work; admittedly some cards just aren't liked by the Z. Lucky you also had a CF card smile.gif

After the restore the D+M menu will be installed again (and all the uboot stuff removed), so use that if you can. ROM is good as a safety net but it can't be updated...
